National security information sharing between the executive branch and Congress is examined in a recent law review article by Heidi Kitrosser. The author suggests that legitimate executive branch secrecy concerns can be addressed by limiting disclosure of certain information to selected congressional committees or other subsets of Congressional membership, which she calls “information funnels.” See “Congressional Oversight of National Security Activities: Improving Information Funnels” by Heidi Kitrosser, Cardozo Law Review, Vol. 29, 2007.

Intelligence oversight in democratic societies is the subject of a new book from the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces. For more information and selected excerpts from the book, see “Democratic Control of Intelligence Services : Containing Rogue Elephants” by Hans Born and Marina Caparini, July 2007.
